Re: [gembud] Generating NEXRAD radar imagery with gpmap_gf

Pete,
     I'm not piping the incoming files through anything - just saving them in 
the incoming format:

NNEXRAD ^SDUS[23578]. .... ([0-3][0-9])([0-2][0-9])([0-6][0-9]).*/p(...)(...)
        FILE    -close  -overwrite      
data/gempak/nexrad/NIDS/\5/\4/\4_(\1:yyyy)(\1:mm)\1_\2\3
